Club Med offers Aussie guests free COVID-19 medical assistance coverage

Premium, all-inclusive holiday specialist Club Med is now offering COVID-19 medical assistance coverage to its Australian guests until 31 December 2022 for any Club Med resort.

As part of the enhanced measures for guests to travel with confidence, this coverage is at no extra cost to help guests cover any medical expenses and cost of stay due to lockdown or quarantine requirements if sick due to COVID-19.

Guests who have made a new booking from 1 July 2020, whether that be directly through Club Med Australia’s website, or through a travel agent, will automatically be eligible for this coverage.

The COVID-19 medical assistance coverage comes as an added component to Club Med’s current flexible Peace of Mind booking policy and in-resort Safe Together guest assurance program.

In addition to the usual 24-hour travel emergency, assistance and evacuation services in the resorts and the basic travel insurance coverage that is already included in its all-inclusive holiday packages for Aussie guests, Club Med’s insurance now also includes COVID-19 medical assistance coverage in the unlikely event of a case confirmation in one of its resorts.

A confirmation of insurance outlining the medical expense coverage in the case of sickness, including COVID-19, can also be provided upon request.

This coverage excludes costs that arise from border lockdowns, interruption of stays following a state of emergency declaration, as well as quarantine at the destination without being sick.

More detailed terms and conditions, as well as sales tools and resources for Club Med’s new COVID-19 medical assistance program, can be found on Club Med’s travel agent portal.
